How to Prevent World War III: Oppose Attacks on Iran

The Bush Administration is reported to be considering the idea of attacking Iran to prevent the country from developing nuclear weapons, and is even considering using tactical nuclear weapons against them.

This is insane. This will usher in World War III.


Russia has a friendly relationship with Iran; any attack on Iran would be considered unacceptable. Russia still has massive amounts of nuclear weapons. China has a friendly relationship with Iran, and would consider any attack on Iran to be unacceptable. China has many, many nuclear weapons.

India and Pakistan are in a very cautious, wary relationship with each other; war has broken out between them a number of times over disagreements surrounding Kashmir. India and Pakistan both have nuclear weapons, and the use of tactical nuclear weapons against Iran by the United States could be considered tacit approval for either of those countries to use their own nuclear weapons against each other.

The use of nuclear weapons, by anyone, for any purpose, is morally reprehensible. A preemptive strike on Iran, either with nuclear or conventional weapons, is morally reprehensible, and would kill many thousands of innocent civilians who have absolutely no say in their leaders' decisions or actions.

Write or call the White House, today, and express your opposition to any attacks on Iran, now or in the future.
